If there wasn’t a known path to legal immigration, citizenship, then I could understand the need for mass reform. However, there is a well documented process, there has been for over a century, so why do we need to pardon and grant amnesty to “illegal” immigrants who chose to forgo those laws and disregard our sovereignty? Can I claim ignorance or racism if I’m arrested in Mexico, Venezuela, or El Salvador for doing the exact same thing? Will their governments pardon me, give me welfare and magically grant me the same rights as their natural born populace? No? Well how about 20 million? If illegal immigrants wanted to stay and work in America as guests, once they’ve been fully vetted and willingly comply with the terms, that’s one thing. But if you want to be a citizen of the United States with all the inherent privileges afforded – including the right to vote and influence our public institutions, our way of life – then leave the country and apply for citizenship as you so egregiously failed to do the first time! After all, wouldn’t the law require you to be deported anyway? Every civilized nation recognizes the non-negotiable need to protect their borders, their people, their sovereignty.
Immigration is a simple issue that has been shamelessly muddled and exploited by Democrats for decades. If you’re purposely trying to flood your native country with a foreign body – those who know or care little for our traditions and ideals – solely to win elections and forever tip the balance of political power, I’d say that qualifies as an attempted coup d’etat and treason. Yes, those are the preferred Barack Obama appetizers of amnesty supporters everywhere. America doesn’t need an Executive Order or a court order reaffirming the obvious; it simply needs to restore order! All are welcome – regardless of race, creed or color – who obey the law. And for those who don’t, especially subversive politicians who believe themselves to be above it, well, I’m pretty sure there’s a vacancy sign in Tijuana. Donkey rides require an ID.
